When Repetition or an Event Results in Shoulder Injuries
Certain occupations that involve physical labor and repetitive activities bring the risk of shoulder injuries. Repetitive lifting, twisting, turning and other supposedly harmless acts can add up over time and cause serious shoulder damage. An accident at work can disable a once-healthy worker who is forced to deal with the effects of a shoulder injury.
You need a firm that provides a higher level of advocacy, with dedicated and experienced attorneys who are well regarded in their industry. For over 70 years, residents of Western Washington have relied on The Walthew Law Firm to handle their Workers' Compensation claims.
Do not assume that a Workers' Compensation benefits claim is something you can handle on your own. Claims managers can willingly or unwittingly try to minimize the extent of your shoulder injury and the amount of money they are willing to pay. To even the odds against you, contact us at 206-812-2997 or toll free at 888-534-5255.
The Challenges You Face
Thoracic outlet damage or tears to the rotator cuff or biceps tendon can not only put you out of work, but can also cause future challenges in performing your job after recovery. Suffering brachial plexus injury or undergoing shoulder replacement surgery can end your career and prevent you from working in the future. Far too much is at stake. The Department of Labor & Industries and self-insured employers are not on your side and not looking out for your best interests.

Whether your shoulder injury sidelines you or ends your career, we are at your side in communicating with doctors and claims managers.
